I wanted to post this page to list what I believe so those who may be wondering, based on any posts I may make, can know implicitly exactly where my faith stands. Please note these are my personal beliefs as I’ve researched the Bible. I may update this periodically as I grow deeper in a relationship with Father, in the Holy Spirit, and by Jesus.
-I do not believe that “Hell” is eternal torment. See this post on the original Greek words. Also see the bottom of this post about fire. The original words for hell have been sorely misappropriated. See this post.
-I believe that all of the prophecies of the Bible have already taken place. I believe the Bible was written specifically to and about Israel. Yes, we are the continuation of God’s followers, but we have to take into account, first and foremost, to whom the Bible was speaking to and about. Here is a general overview of how I’ve come to this.
-I believe in Universal Reconciliation. A post briefly describing my view.
This is the sum of my beliefs, though possibly radical to much of current Western Christianity. I believe that God is good, that he is love, and that his plan will not fail. Yes, I believe he punished people with wrath in this life, but I also believe his wrath ends after the corrective punishment has taken place. As for the afterlife, we are given scant few details on that. Most of what has been adopted as afterlife punishment wasn’t referencing such (see Hell and Fire posts linked above).
